Returning back to US. What about German income taxes?

1 post in this topic

Hello all,

we are considering to return back to US, with my family in the first semester of 2022...


I would appreciate an advice, if somebody has experience with the following questions.


A little background beforehand: I will keep working in Germany until Feb 2022 and after that we are going back. In this case, I would change my Wohnsitz from Germany to US, as I expect to start a new position there.  


So here the questions:


1. Is there any mimimum income under which I do not have to file German taxes? (Again Wohnsitz in the USA)

2. Will I have to pay additional taxes for the 2 months income (Jan & Feb), other than what my German employer has withheld already?

3. I have some stocks from my company, which pays me dividend in Germany every year, a 3 digit-amount per year. Are they going to be further taxed with 25%+ after I change my wohnsitz? And will I have to file taxes every year to declare this dividend income?  


I could not find any exact relevant threat, so apologies for any incovenience, if there is something
